TIPS AND TECHNIQUES by FireCaster TIPS AND TECHNIQUES by FireCaster
Some people have been asking how I came up with my recent colored pencil drawings, so here it is.

These are the techniques I use. I'd like to remind everyone that I did not have formal training in the arts and so these are all basically self discoveries.

I am no authority in art education, but I will share my knowledge in the same way I share the product of what I know.

I hope some of you may find them useful and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I am at your service (except for drawing requests, not right now) :D

PS. Feel free to download it if you like, after all, I did it for you :)

It's amazing to what effects pencils and a couple of rubbers can do X3
I can't say I'm surprised though, anyone can create beautiful effects using these sorts of techniques and simple colouring pencils X3
Thank you for the tips! I've found them very helpful ^^

Thanks for sharing. I liked the part of how you created the line art. I am just beginning with colored pencils (one year ago I got my first box of them). I have found that if you keep working them, the better things can go. I think we give up too easily when if we kept working it, it can be salvaged. I was working last night and just kept working.
